School History

  • Our elementary school was founded in 1985 after members of Covenant Church met for a year-long season of prayer, fasting, study, and discussion about educating their children in God’s ways of wisdom and love.
  • In 1987, we developed our “Daniel mission statement” and articulated the school’s Six Words: Courage, Humility, Respect, Integrity, Seeker of God, and Teachability.
  • In 1996, the school had 60 students and moved from its original classroom in Park Avenue Congregational Church in Arlington to its current location at 9 Westminster Ave in Arlington.
  • In 2009, we founded Highrock Covenant Preschool, a partnership between Covenant School and Highrock Church.
  • In 2012, we consolidated the preschool and elementary programs into one independent 501(c)(3) corporation under the name New Covenant School, Incorporated.
  • In 2015, we added a dedicated 4 year old Pre-Kindergarten program to our Elementary School.
  • In 2016, we were unable to renew the building lease for our Preschool program, our former Preschool Director acquired the Preschool and moved it to Sommerville as its own non-profit organization under the name Kingdom Rock Children’s Village, Inc.
